I just got back from downtown, where I took in Million Dollar Baby and Meet the Fokkers, both of which I enjoyed. In any case, as I was coming home--mind you it's three degrees out right now, not counting wind chill--I was, as I have been since our cold spell began, continually frustrated by the neck-strangling difficulty that is wearing an iPod while wearing a scarf. and if one also wants to carry a messenger bag on one's shoulder--well!

Smart people at Apple computer: this note is for you. Humans went to the moon. We created heinously amazing things like the iPod, the Huygens probe and Pad See Ew with beef. Surely something can be done..?

Pad See Eww? Amazing? No way, dude.

Nick said...

um, try the version that hasn't been left in the campus cafe fridges for a week. yummay!

Nick, I've eaten it "fresh" at Snail, and it tastes OK at the time, but still makes you feel crummy later.

Nick said...

the only thing that's crummy is your lack of appreciation for a fabulous dish.

...and getting choked by one's own iPod headphones and scarf.

What about a scarf with a pocket to hold the iPod and maybe a loop to anchor the headphone cord?

I've had Chicken Pad See Ew from Noodles, and it's soo good... almost like Mu Shu Chicken with noodles when you add soy sauce.
